Psych alum Maggie Lawson has signed on to star opposite Jane Lynch (Glee) in Angel From Hell, CBS’ comedy pilot from Bent executive producer Tad Quill and the network’s sister studio CBS Television Studios.
Angel From Hell tells the story of an unlikely friendship which is formed when Amy enters Allison’s life and claims to be her guardian angel. Allison is inclined to believe that Amy is just another wingnut, except that every last one of Amy’s pronouncements comes true
Maggie Lawson, whose previous comedy credits include the short-lived ABC series Back In The Game, will play Allison, who is described as being a multi-tasker and perfectionist. Jane Lynch, who just wrapped a six season run on Glee, stars as Amy, Allison’s new friend and guardian angel.
The single camera comedy is being produced by CBS Television Studios and is executive produced by Tad Quill, who also created the comedy and is penning the script. Don Scardino, whose previous credits include 2 Broke Girls, 30 Rock and The Mindy Project, is attached to direct.
